Hello! Thanks for visiting! Please allow me to introduce myself.
My name is Ray Shiu and I am a freelance photographer. I prefer the photo journalistic approach to making my images as opposed to the conceptual approach, meaning I like shooting candidly as life (or events) unfold.
Watching, waiting and capturing THAT moment is what "does it" for me.
Imagery wise, thus far, I've earned the Licentiateship and Associateship Distinctions from the Photographic Society of Singapore. I've been fortunate enough to have been published by news outlets (print and online), e-zines, blogs and books.
In direct contrast to my "as real as it gets" style of image making, a fast growing hobby of mine is artistic rendering. When I see one of my photos, sometimes inspiration pushes me to render it in a way that's more artistic than journalistic . To illustrate what I mean, here's my global warming polar bear.
If we've just met because I snapped a photo of you and passed you my business card, Street Photography is the section you're looking for. Please feel free to have a look around while you're here.
Should you have any questions, concerns or requests please don't hesitate to drop me a line.
Thank you for your support, time and attention. Enjoy...
